Stefano Lentini - La Porta Rossa / The Grandmaster

Stefano Lentini is a music composer based in Rome, Italy. He has produced music extensively for film, television and documentary. As a multi-instrumentalist, Lentini is known for blending classical music with folk and electronic influences through the use of multi-track recording. His main combinations include acoustic guitars in a John Renbourn’s fingerpicking style with electric bass, piano and string orchestrations. He additionally mixes sampler and synth sonorities with electric guitars. Some of his other film work include music for “The Nest of the Turtledove, The Ballerina, Shooting Silvio, and Grazing the Wall.

In this episode, Stefano Lentini talks about his unusual path to writing music for film and television starting with a piece he wrote for the Italian television series, LA PORTA ROSSA (which was nominated for Best Soundtrack at the Fimucite Film Festival. He then reveals how he was able to get the Stabat Mater he composed to be used in Wong Kar Wai’s 2013 feature film THE GRANDMASTER. And coming in a BONUS EPISODE of The Annotator, you will hear Lentini talk about several pieces of his 2018 release, “Fury.”
